"Quinteto Tati" (meaning the Tati Quintet) is a portuguese band that made its debut in 2004. Despite the name, honouring the cineast Jacques Tati, the band has six members, and not five. The vocalist and lyric author is JP Simões, known as vocalist of the band Belle Chase Hotel.
The music by Quinteto Tati has a jazzy influence and borrows from rumba, waltzes and a certain decadent "latinicidade". The writing of music is shared between JP Simões and Sérgio Costa, also a member of Belle Chase Hotel, originally from Coimbra.
Until now, the band has just one album out, "Exílio", of 2004. It had good critical reviews, receiving much praise both for the album and the concerts, but the band never quite overcame anonimity. Nonetheless, Quinteto Tati tried to cross borders, having played in Santiago de Compostela and Galiza (Spain), in April 2005.
Besides JP Simões (vocal, acoustic guitar, lyric and music) and Sérgio Costa (piano, keyboards, electric guitar, sax, flute and accordion), the band is composed by José Miguel Nogueira (guitars), Pedro Pinto (bass and cello), Rui Alves (drums and percussion) and Daniel Tapadinhas (trumpet and french horn).
